Bobbejaanland in Lichtaart nearby Antwerp is one of the biggest Belgian theme parks. The park was founded in 1961 by the Flemish singer and entertainer Bobbejaan Schoepen and is currently being run by the Spanish Group Parques Reunidos. The park features some interesting and rare rides, e.g. the only Vekoma illusion coaster in operation, where the ride hardware is enhanced by a large video projection onto the ceiling.

Fun Fact #1: Till some years ago, the park had a wind turbine on its properties. Although it never seemed to be active, there was a running gag that it could generate all the energy needed for park operations.

Fun Fact #2: The Hafema Raft Ride Rio Dorado is one of just two raft rides ever build with a giant wheel like lift. None of these are in operation.
